Since Rogue Trader the Clawed Fiend has developed, it was first called the Cthellean Cudbear and looked like the picture below.
Next it appeared in the 3 rd edition 40K and was called the Clawed Fiend of the Donorian sector, a model was never released so I built one, which my friend who liked Dark Eldar really liked so I gave it to him for his Birthday.
It then didn't appear again until the second edition codex, and when the model came out I wasn't enthralled, but preferred Jes Goodwins concept sketch instead, so I built one based on that, whic a customer spotted in my display cabinet at a show and bought it.
So after two attempts I still hadn't actually painted one, now I know I said I was going to do this for Monster May(hem) but once I finished sculpting it I just couldn't wait, I've changed the design on this one a bit, but I like the modifications, I've also included the greens below so you can see it was all scratchbuilt.
After finishing this one I realised what it now reminded me of, Stitch from Lilo & Stitch, just bigger and more angry looking ! LOL This is my first entry for the challenge, next could be more DE or mutants, or Star Wars, I will see what grabs my attention. So until next time stay safe and have fun !
